RTB, the CGIAR Research Program on Roots, Tubers and Bananas, is conducting a Strategic Assessment of Research Priorities to identify which research options are expected to yield the highest impacts on welfare, poverty, food security, human nutrition and health, gender equity and environmental sustainability. This strategy involves a dynamic, systematic approach of continual revision and updating of research priorities. The objective is to engage scientists and stakeholders from the RTB community in a dialogue to increase the relevance and enhance the impacts of RTB research. A six-stage research process (http://cipotato.org/publications/pdf/rtb_six_steps.pdf ) ensures that the strategic definition of RTB priorities incorporates the views of the stakeholders in the global research community.
Key elements of the RTB priority-setting strategy are the expert surveys on priorities and needs for research in our mandate crops. Get involved by filling out the crop survey that best matches your expertise:
- Sweetpotato/Camote (English | Español | 中文)
- Potato/Papa (English | Español | Français | 中文)
- Yam/Igname (English | Français)
- Cassava/Manioc (English | Español | Français | Português)
- Banana (Musa) (English | Español | Français)
Filling out the survey should not take you more than 25 minutes and can be interrupted at any time.
